The What of the CITY?
(Excerpt from CITYZENING Catalogue)In our collective sojourn, the city was defined assomething more than a place or location. It iswhere the local and the global do exist, but do notmatter. It is a dimension, an idea, an instance, anoccasion and/or an event that exists in theeveryday and the other days. It is not a boundary but the extent which cover preferences, choices,habits, actions and reactions. It is a system wherehard and soft goods are traded with or againstnecessities or luxuries.And it is through this system where the ability of man to reassign being is optimized. Reassigningbeing is not simply changing suit; it is the ability toadapt to change; it is the willingness to at leastreflect and (eventually) adapt the new; by referencing or being mindful (at most times) towhat was old, what was usual or what have been.In this spirit, the citizen or people who live in thecity are reassigned as the cityzen or people whoare cities. Cityzenship is what we experience orhow we chose to experience what we are. And thatwe are cityzens by virtue of how we act on what wechose to act on.
